The Letterpress plates originally came out in the Holiday Mini Catalog back in September and they also carried over into the Occasions Mini Catalog. I wasn't to sure if I wanted to buy them so I thought I'd wait and see what others would do with them before I decided to make the purchase. Shortly after I began seeing samples with them and thought I would give them a try but since Valentine's was so far off, I kept moving them down the on the list of what to purchase next.
I inked up the plate with Versamark ink so that the words would stand out better. I had in my mind to use the Happy I Do Day stamp from the Word Play Stamp set but I wasn't to sure how or where I was going to put it, I also couldn't decide if I wanted to make a portrait or landscape card, so I decided to make both. The other thing I had been wanting to do was try the scrunched ribbon. I tried it first in Marina Mist but then thought, "is that to much blue?" So I redid my ribbon in Whisper White, I ended up using both. I like the whisper white against the Bashful Blue but my husband likes the Marina Mist better. I also added a little bling to the "I Do", it doesn't sparkle in the picture but it does in real life. I kept these cards simple because I wanted letterpress to stand out.
I hope you enjoyed these cards. Now I just need a wedding to go to so I can use one of these.
